You may not be able to do it.  From the Tripod website [1]:

  # Your file names, and images need to be HTML compliant. That means
    no spaces within their names, and no non-alphanumeric characters.

This is a problem because ArX uses filenames and directories with
commas "," to start the name.  This will be fixed in the next version
of ArX.

  # You can't create subdirectories (folders) from FTP, that needs to
    be done from the File Manager within your Tripod account

This is a more serious problem, and I do not know of a simple
workaround.  With this restriction, you are basically out of luck.  I
don't think any of the distributed systems will work with this
restriction.  Sorry.

With all that said, the error messages you got could be much better.
It looks like the gnome-vfs backend is buggy, causing premature
termination.  Moving to a different networking backend is part of the
next release, and should improve error handling.
